The progressive reduction of mineral working in the Peak District National Park by the transfer to Derbyshire of a proportion of the sub-regional apportionment (as has been agreed in the recent review by the East Midlands RAWP), will inevitably result in a reduction on the Derbyshire landbank, albeit not a significant one. However, if the principle is repeated in future reviews, the effect on Derbyshire's landbank will be cumulative and will accelerate. It will also tend to increase the envir

Strong support for this policy as phrased, i.e. in relation to what is sustainable supply (both vis-à-vis sensitivities of where the alternative supply is located and how it gets to market). See above (comments on Issue 1) for the rationale on the relative size of the displacement that DC/DC can contribute to.
